LOS ANGELES, November 28, 2018 – The new Niro EV opens a world of new possibilities for consumers who love crossover characteristics but also want all the benefits electric vehicles have to offer. Not only can they have all the functionality of a traditional crossover, but they can have it while happily driving past filling stations.
When Kia designed and created the Niro, it was engineered to accommodate many different advanced electrified powertrains. First to arrive in 2016 was the hybrid, then in 2017 the Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), and now a fully-electric powertrain. Continue reading

Take the time to watch this brief video and you’ll understand that it’s a lot closer than you think before we’re all driving electric. Continue reading

Eight manufacturers of EVs – Nissan, BMW, Fiat-Chrysler, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Volvo – will display cars like the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3 in the EVolution Zone. General Motors and Ford (along with the previous eight) will offer up cars for test drives in nearby special sections in both the convention centre’s North and South Buildings. As well as the Leaf and the i3, other EVs available to test will include the Chevrolet Volt and Bolt, the Outlander PHEV, the Honda Clarity, the Volvo XC40, the Hyundai IONIQ and the Ford Focus Electric.

The new Malibu is a good-looking car, as is the Cruze and I love the Colorado truck, so change is afoot at Chevrolet – time to check out the goods! Continue reading
